Newcomers - Please Read Before Posting

Hello!  And Welcome to the MedHelp Dogs Community!  We are so glad that you chose us and hope that we are able to help you and provide the answer(s) you are looking for.

Before you begin posting, please take note of the date on the post that started the thread you are posting in.  Many times posts from a long time ago end up on the front page because when someone adds a post to them, they are moved to the front.  When this happens, readers tend not to pay any attention to the thread because it's old, and you may not get the replies you are looking for.  In other forums it is common for those in charge to request that you read through the posts first because your question may already have been answered in another thread.   Well, here at MedHelp, it is BETTER for you to START YOUR OWN THREAD.  Each case is an individual case when it comes to our dogs.  An answer that fits one dog may not fit another dog with the same condition.  It's better to have two or three threads with the same subject than it is to have old topics being brought to the front because posters will respond to multiple threads on the same subject, but they are not all too likely to post to a thread that is 2 or 3 or even 4 years old.  

So don't be afraid to start yourself a thread and ask your question!  Your dog is special, he or she deserves special attention!  Don't worry how many threads there are, if you have a question and the existing threads on that subject are more than a week or so old, start a new thread so your pup gets the attention he or she deserves.

Well said Ghilly.
Questions tacked onto the end of old threads do tend to get missed.  People think "oh we've read that before", move on...and miss the little cry for help tacked on the end.
Whereas a new question will ALWAYS get noticed.

I sent a message to our moderator to ask if they would please "Sticky" this message so it stays at the top of the forum.  Hopefully that's possible.  :)

Yes, welll said from me too Ghilly. Actually, the other night I found myself replying to a thread from last April, just because I hadn't checked the date and it came to the top of the forum as someone had added something actually quite inappropriate at the bottom. That'll teach me to read the dates rather more carefully. Tony

I made a post about this a few months ago but as time went by, it got "lost in the sauce" and worked its way down into the dungeon of defunct posts.  I think, however, what brought it to the point where I had to bring it up again (and send a message to the Mods to please ask them to make it a sticky) was the other night when I spent about 45 minutes composing a response to someone about Cushing's Disease when I scrolled through  the thread to get to the bottom to paste in my response that I had composed and cut from my notepad when I saw my name on a post in the thread!  After the WTH moment passed, I went back and looked at the date on the original post and it was from three years ago!  Grrrrrrr!!  LOL!

Ha, that'll teach you too, I guess. Thanks for bringing a smile to my face, even at this late hour (12:10am in the UK). Tony

This is a great idea...so....seeing that this post was at the bottom of the page....I am bumping it back up to the top...well, for today anyway.
Hopefully the Mods can make your post stick to the top of the page soon..!
Good Luck....!

All I know, if I did not have this place to come to after my little Jack died, I would have gone nuts! So many good people here, who dealt with loss helped me through my darkest hours. So much pain out there in the world, losing a little sick dog seems so selfish for me to even talk about, but those who love their animals knew my pain was real.  Dogs and cats, plus range of other pets are part of our lives. Dogs are especially loyal and loving. It's was do good to have good caring people who understand the pain is real when you lose a good friend..dogs are family too.

Thanks,

Mark

Bump again! (what's happening? We need this to be a sticky post!)
Blank

I asked the Mods if they could sticky it but they said that nothing can be stickied on these forums, it's not in the programming.  The best we can do, I was advised, is to keep bumping it to the top so that it stays where it can be seen.  So I keep bumping it.  :)
